My 9 year old and I have been in knitting mode lately. Earlier in the summer he asked if I would teach him how to knit. I taught him the basics with knitting needles, which he actually picked up better than I thought. Then I bought him a set of round knitting looms and had him choose his own yarn. He now can sit for pretty long periods of time and knit on his loom.
As for me, I’ve been working on a couple of knitting projects in the evenings, usually after the kids go to bed.
Anyway, since we’ve been in a knitting mode, I thought I’d try my hand at making t-shirt yarn. I’m not sure how we’ll use it yet, but thought it would be at least interesting to try.
It definitely wasn’t difficult or too time-consuming.
Here’s how I made my own t-shirt yarn:
From my little bit of research on this, t-shirt yarn can be used to knit, crochet, or braid. I’ll keep you posted on any projects I make out of this!
